Next step is test the spark plug wires. They could be bad. You will need a spark tester which is inexpensive.

Its been a looong time I've worked on a car's distributor. According to you the dist. cap and rotor are new. So if the ignition coil is working there should be spark on each of the dist. cap terminal. Simply remove the plug wire, insert the spark tester and have some1 crank the engine while you observe. If you don't get spark, then the ignition coil is faulty or the 12v power supply is not getting to the power transsistor to energize the ignition coil to produce the high voltage needed to fire the spark plug. You will need the electrical manual or at least the engine control manual so you know which color wire is supply, signal wire, etc. Also search for videos on youtube, good luck.
